Payroll, benefits and compliance for remote teams.
Pilot (YC W17) is looking for an experienced Design System Developer, with experience working on complex B2B products, to join a growing team on a mission to create a more open worldwide job market.
A bit about who we are
Pilot helps companies to handle payroll, benefits, and compliance for their remote teams. We believe that your opportunities in life shouldn’t be dictated by where you’re from or where you happen to live, and we’re helping our customers live by that too. We’re backed by Sam Altman, Y Combinator, Credo Ventures, Automattic, Kyle Vogt, and many other amazing investors.
What you will be working on:
You’ll join a small product team to become developer and maintainer of our CSS framework (with similarities to Tailwind) and design system, as well as a UI developer. You’ll be responsible for implementing new components that will be used by other developers from the product team, as well as implementing full features that involve a lot of user interaction and require someone with your skill set to make them truly great.
Most of our code is in Ruby—we use Rails 6.1 with bits of React/TypeScript on the front-end. Our CSS framework is written in modular SCSS, with Tailwind-like utility classes.
We have a pretty lightweight process: 1-week sprints, weekly planning sessions, and asynchronous progress updates. We use Slack, Linear, Tandem, and Zoom to communicate and plan our work. We enjoy working together as a team, but there’s also a lot of opportunities to work autonomously.
We’d especially like to talk to you if
We try to hold all most of our team meetings between 7am–9am PST / 3pm–5pm BST / 11pm–1am JST to accommodate as many time zones as possible.
We are Pilot, a Y Combinator-backed startup after a successful seed funding round, with a small distributed team working remotely from Poland and San Francisco. Our mission is to create a more open worldwide job market. Today, we’re doing that by helping companies hire and pay remote international staff.
